MEDIA    -->    PHOTO     -->    YEARS


Years is a series with my grandmother (Mimi), Phyllis Skinner. I began the series on a whim in 2017 with the first interation being 89 Years. Now, each year I have with her from then on, I’m replicating the same photographs by memory. The photographs are taken on her birthday, February 20th.

I’ve been capturing the series on film. After discussing the project with my Mimi, I’ve assigned her a few projects of her own to be included in this series. Those being poetry, personal stories and knowledge the rest of my family may not know of.

89 Years

90 Years

91 Years

93 Years

I wrote a story about the entire experience here on Narrative.

*Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to properly complete 92 Years due to COVID.*
